Merritt Law has the legal experience to partner with you or your organization as your outside general counsel. We seek to develop a working knowledge of you and your primary business objectives and goals, allowing you the time to focus on the most important business aspects of your company. As outside general counsel, we desire to be so accessible and knowledgeable about you and your business it would seem we are simply “in the office down the hall” with the resources and contacts to “quarterback” your legal needs at a lower cost. We become our clients’ “one-stop-shop” with either the personal knowledge to get the job done, or when needed, to call in a known and trusted specialist. Our goal is to learn the ins and outs of your business, allowing you the time to focus on growing your company with the peace of mind that your legal interests are being taken care of.
